Can modular kitchens sustain water damage?
Whether your modular kitchen can sustain water damage depends mostly on the materials used in its construction. Wooden floors, countertops and cabinet shutters are less likely to withstand water damage in comparison to melamine, glass, composite material and marine ply.
As mentioned earlier, it is a good idea to choose a worktop made from a water-resistant material, as this is the area most prone to water damage. That being said, any kitchen, modular or otherwise, needs to be taken care of and this means you need to wipe spills and water rings immediately, and clean the countertops, cabinets, shelves and accessories regularly.
